Chevy Volt Pricing Announced
Well, after $1 billion dollars of investment and keeping us waiting for 1,297 days, final Chevy Volt pricing details were revealed today. Suffice it to say the Volt is a little bit expensive for many of those looking to buy a hybrid. The 2011 Chevy Volt price comes in at right around $41,000 which will be offset by $7,500 due to a new tax credit GM managed to rally out of DC. At $33,500 the new Volt is coming out at a higher price point than many of the leading competitors including the new Nissan Leaf (Base MSRP $32,780). It is also a tad bit more expensive than other entry level models available including the Toyota Prius (22,800), Nissan Altima Hybrid (Base MSRP $26,780) and Honda Insight (Base MSRP $19,800)..
So what are you getting for your $33k, well for one thing, you are getting 40 miles before your ride even starts to sip a drop of gas. For many commuters that will get you to the office and for a select few that will get you there and back.
So how can you get one? Well right now the cars are only available in CA, NY, MI, CT, TX, NJ and of course DC. To top it off, in 2011 only 10,000 cars will be produced with just 30,000 being produced in 2012. (Some quick math, if they only sold 40,000 cars in total they would have to sell 25,000 to re-coup their costs) If you happen to live in one of these great states and are on of the first 10,000 to register, you can get your hands on a Volt by going to www.getmyvolt.com and registering now!
If you are worried about the money, donít for just $350 a month and $2,500 down, you can lease one for 36-Months!!
